From Scratch Hot Cocoa

You know those first days of winter when you haven't gone out and bought the hot chocolate mixes, but it's suddenly snowing and you're in the mood for a good cup of Hot Cocoa, but you don't want to go out and deal with winter? Well, that happened in my house this year...

So, Hot Cocoa from scratch:

You'll need:
Milk (I used Whole)
Chocolate Chips (I used Semi-Sweet)
Brown Sugar

I put in about 2 cups of Milk, 1 1/2 Tbs of Brown Sugar and somewhere between 1/8 and 1/4 a cup of Chocolate Chips. Just heat on Low/Medium heat and stir constantly until it all melts.

*Tip: The Chocolate Chips will take forever to fully melt/disolve into the milk. You'll think that turning the heat up will help, but it will only curdle/scald the milk. Just be patient! If you do end up with little swirls of unmelted chocolate, it just makes a yummy little surprise as you drink your Hot Cocoa!
